Tyme #2: Disenchanted: The Trials of Cinderella
Scholastic Inc | ISBN 9780545642712 Hardcover
416 Pages | 5.98" x 8.52" | Ages 8 to 12
The most delightful "Cinderella" retelling since Ella Enchanted.
Ella Coach has one wish: revolution. Her mother died working in a sweatshop, and Ella wants every laborer in the Blue Kingdom to receive fairer treatment. But to make that happen, she’ll need some high-level support...
Prince Dash Charming has one wish: evolution. The Charming Curse forced generations of Charming men to lie, cheat, and break hearts—but with the witch Envearia’s death, the curse has ended. Now Dash wants to be a better person, but he doesn’t know where to start...
Serge can grant any wish—and has. As an executive fairy godfather, he’s catered to the wildest whims of spoiled teenagers from the richest, most entitled families in Blue. But now a new name has come up on his list, someone nobody’s ever heard of... Ella Coach.
This is a story about three people who want something better and who together find the faith to change their worlds. It’s "Cinderella," brilliantly re-imagined, and a delightful expansion of the wonderful world of Tyme.
Raves & reviews:
Praise for Tyme #1: Grounded: The Adventures of Rapunzel

*"Morrison has a deft hand with both world-building and pacing, carefully constructing the geography and various politics of the fairy-tale world of Tyme in between chase scenes, bridge collapses, narrow escapes, and bargains with all sorts of devious beings." —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review
"Those expecting a Disneyesque Rapunzel in Morrison’s debut, first in the Tyme series, will be pleasantly surprised by the novel’s emotional depth and inventiveness... A full-bodied world worth revisiting." —Publishers Weekly
